Ardingly College

Schools are places of discovery as well as education. No child is good at everything but every child is good at something. We will support every student to discover where their strengths lie.

Our students leave as confident individuals ready for the world having reached their academic potential.

But more than that we are living in a diverse and competitive world. At Ardingly College we understand this and encourage our students to grasp every opportunity to be ready for the world when they leave us.

Ardingly College is based in the beautiful Sussex countryside in the UK, just 15 minutes from London Gatwick and 45 minutes from London Heathrow.

In the Senior School pupils design their academic programme to suit their abilities and interests whilst studying core subjects of Maths, English and Science. Pre-IB is also offered. In the Sixth Form there is a choice of A level, IB or BTEC. Our academic results are excellent across the board.


There is a vibrant social life for boarders at the weekend, with a programme of events and excursions. We support every student to find balance and fulfilment, whilst developing the resilience to overcome any challenges.


Sports, music, art and drama feature highly in the lives of pupils at Ardingly College. We also have an extensive enrichment programme offering a wide variety of activities enabling students to discover academic passions, fulfil interests and develop creative or sporting talents.
